you will be informed of your location at training.
Will we use a software system for ordering, calculating sales, and
Yes, the software system is called M2OS. It can handle both nut and
magazine orders. September training dates will be posted on the GSGLA
Will an ACH (Automatic Clearing House) system to collect funds be
due to council?
Yes, the debit will be on Dec. 4, so make sure you have sufficient
funds to cover the amount due at least seven days before this debit
date. Processing times for deposits vary; do not wait until the day
before the debit is scheduled to deposit money into your troop
account; you should be depositing promptly and frequently and
encouraging your parents to be turning over funds they/their daughter
have/has collected promptly and frequently.
If I am a Juliette, can I still participate in the fall
Yes. Reach out to the product sales manager in your area so she can
put you in touch with the service unit fall product chair nearest you.
Will there be a fall Gift of Caring (GOC) program?
Yes, customers may make monetary GOC donations (in $5 increments).
GSGLA will then purchase nuts to be sent to the LAX USO, local food
banks through the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and Operation
Gratitude. Gift of Caring receipts are available for those that
What about the magazine portion of the sale?
All magazine orders are taken online. When a girl (with her parent)
sets up her storefront in M2OS she will be emailing family and friends
about her sale. A link in that email will direct her customers to her
store where they can choose to order nut/candy products and/or
order/renew magazine subscriptions. For magazines, the troop will
receive 20% of the total dollar amount sold. This portion of the
program is linked directly with the nut/candy portion, she doesn’t
need to do anything different when setting up her storefront, her
customers will be sent links to both shopping areas.
I understand there is a service unit bonus. What is that?
We know you have big plans to support your troops next year, but may
be a little short on funds to do that. Here’s an answer. Set a service
unit goal of at least 40 units per girl selling and organize your team
on how to achieve it. Service units who increase the number of girls
participating by 10 girls or 10% over last year (whichever is less)
AND have a Per-Girl Average (PGA) of 40 units or higher, will receive
proceeds per number of units sold.
Why am I being warned about exposure to a harmful chemical in my
Girl Scout food product?
This warning is required to comply with California Proposition 65
which requires a warning for any chemical occurring in a product that
is included on the California Proposition 65 list. The information for
Prop 65 is listed at the end of the statement on the girl order card.
We should allow the consumer to make their own decisions. See more FAQs related to this.
What if I have additional questions?
You can check the GSGLA website for updates or contact your service
unit fall product chair, who will contact your regional product sales
manager as needed.
